5. Tips & tricks


Your phone has a few other features that you might find helpful, this guide will take you through some of the more useful ones.

Rearranging the navigation buttons

The LG Stylus 2 comes with a data monitor that helps you check how much data you're using. You can also set a data limit, stopping you from going over your allowance.

To set this up, go to Settings > Networks > Data Usage and choose the name of your network. You'll need to set your billing date so the app knows when to measure your data usage from, and you can also tick the box so the app restricts your usage when you reach your limit.

Saving power

If your phone is running low on power, there are a few things you can do to get the most out of the remaining battery.

Go to Settings > General > Battery & power saving. You'll see an estimate of how long the battery will last, based on how the phone's being used. You'll also see a list of apps showing you how much of the battery power each one has used.

To increase the life of the battery, tap Battery saving mode. This will restrict some features of the phone, like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, to make the battery last longer.
